Advising Notes

Please Read: This major guide is a list of all possible major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, it’s designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major. 

1. Students must submit a portfolio of their work in order to be considered for admission to the program. See the department's web site for review dates and more information on the portfolio. 
2. Industrial Design requires 78 credits in art, art history and art-related courses. Students must complete a portfolio review after completing core courses in order to progress in the major.
